SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.

You might have broken the actual mechanism enabling it to move forward. To be honest, your easiest solution would be to buy another shredder rather than attempt repair if this is the case, they're so cheap now.

get a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the jammed paper out. (you may need to figure out how to pop off the top cover to get better access to the blades)

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

Black and decker shredder will only go in reverse, when you try forward it makes a loud sounding noise and will not take the paper


Shredders require maintenance. They have moving parts that make lots of dust.

Check your user manual. Does it require oil or special oiled sheets? If so, you might be overdue for this maintenance. Also, check the frequency of how often you are supposed to oil/add oiled sheets to it.

If it won't accept paper in the forward position, then you might be out of luck with trying to run oiled sheets thought it. If it's still under warranty, see if they can repair it for you.

PROBLEM SENSOR PAPER DETECTION


There is a lever inside the shredder that is connected to a micro switch that detects the paper. Its usually located in the center of the opening where you insert the paper. This switch will make a very slight click if you turn the shredder off and insert a sheet of paper at the opening. If you can hear it click and it still doesn't work the motor could be defective.

The shredder doesn't automatically shred anymore. How do I set it so the "eye" works and it shreds automatically without me holding down the button?


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,


Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene

I have been using my shredder heavily in the last 30 minutes. I have had to stop twice for it to cool down. It was working fine, and now it won't accept paper. The cutters are turning fine. It is not...


Most shredders don't recommend use for more than 20-25 sheets in a session. Try using the reverse setting; even though you can't see paper, it's possible that there's some still in the feed channel. If after switching to reverse paper comes out, inspect the feed channel for more paper and clear any you find before trying to feed more sheets. Also in the future, constant use as you've described will burn out the motor.

Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.
